Why is my BMI calculator returning "Underweight" for weight 120 and height 1.7?

The input is supposed to take weight of 120 a d height of 1.7. Since BMI is greater than 30, in is supposed to print Obesity. But it is printing Undrweight. What am I doing wrong?!

First of all: hard to say without seeing what you actually did so far (please edit your question and insert your code) Moreover: you could maybe print(BMI) to controll whether the calculation is correct or something like this Looking forward to look at your code and give you better hints

#This is my code for the BMI Calculator weight = float(input()) height = float(input()) BMI = weight / (height **2) if BMI < 18.5: print("Underweight") elif (BMI >= 18.5) and (BMI < 25): print("Normal") elif (BMI >= 25) and (BMI < 30): print("Overweight") elif (BMI >= 30): print("Obesity") #May need to fix the indentation

I copied your code and it printed Obesity for me… Inpout formatted like this: 120 1.7 Did you maybe enter the numbers in the wrong order?

I am not sure now. IDLE is outputting Underweight. Maybe I put in the wrong order of numbers.🤔 Thank you so much!😁
